Tia Heights

Tia Heights


Tia Heights is located at Deer Park Heights, the popular Queenstown tourist attraction. It's only 20-minutes drive from the centre of Queenstown in the South Island.

Tia Heights is positioned 500 metres above sea level overlooking the expansive deer park and beautiful Lake Wakatipu. The glamping site is completely tucked away amongst the tussocky hill country on an exclusive part of the property.

A luxurious Belle Tent and outback trailer kitchen and bathroom make up the accommodation. The Belle Tent sleeps two in a comfortable queen-size bed. Chill in the beanbags on a summer evening as the sun sets on the horizon casting everchanging shadows on the surrounding peaks.

A delicious continental breakfast and scenic drive and animal encounter on Deer Park Heights are included with your stay. You can feed and pet the animals - including deer, donkeys, miniature horses, pigs and so much more. If you want to get out and about, a water taxi can pick you up two minutes from the entrance of the farm and take you right to the heart of Queenstown.

  • Things To Do

    A stay at Tia Heights includes a scenic drive and animal encounter on Deer Park Heights farm (usually valued at $55). Watch, feed and pet the animals, or stroll walkways and have picnics in the park. You can also check out the spots where famous movies like Lord of the Rings were made, or simply admire a 360-degree view of the Wakatipu Basin.

    Head down to the lakefront in Kelvin Heights and go for a swim or water taxi to Queenstown Central. The town offers markets on Saturday mornings, plenty of shops, a golf course, and lots of scenic walks along the lakeside.

    Wye Creek Track is a gorgeous hike up the Remarkables through waterfalls and native bush. Explore the Jack's Point Track and make your way to Arrowtown for lunch and take in the town's history. A 15-minute scenic drive from Arrowtown takes you to Gibbston Valley. Enjoy the culture through wine tasting and food delicacies. 

    If you prefer to stay in your tent, there is a selection of board games to play, including chess/checkers, Yatzy, puzzles and wooden mancala.

    Alenka and John, their children Sophie and Charlie, and their golden retriever - Molly are your hosts at Tia Heights.

    The family has lived at Deer Park Heights for four years now. They work for the Mee family, who are the owners and creative force behind this incredible tourist park. 

    Alenka works part-time as a Digital Marketer for Data Story and raises her two young children. Her husband, John, manages Deer Park Heights farm. Deer Park Heights includes 800 hectares of land, fenced with 1000 Red Deer and 150 Angus Hereford cows. Together, both John and Alenka manage the tourist park side of Deer Park Heights, which is a scenic drive and animal encounter.

    They love the property for its elevated views and unique landscape - and love that the animals make the experience extra special.

    It’s not in the wilderness, but it’s far enough away to feel like you're in the wilderness. Look over the majestic scenery and revel in your luxury and solitude. You're in charge of how much solitude you want. A beautiful place to be with someone you love.

    I've been to Queenstown a couple times but this experience gave the opportunity to see it with a new perspective. A tranquil and quiet place to connect to the surrounding beauty. Highly recommend!

    Truly an unbelievably special experience. Just 15 minutes from the Queenstown CBD, Tia Heights feels like your own private chalet high in the mountains looking over the lake, the twinkling lights of town, the Milky Way and the mountains surrounds on all sides - with touches of sunlight, pines, shade, light breezes, the lovely pond and absolute quietness and privacy. Everything is top-drawer: the bed, linens, furnishings, the clever kitchen, the spacious light and convenient toilet-shower-sink, the sitting area, the property, breakfast provided, fresh flowers, and the wonderful hosts. If this place isn't booked solid for a year ahead, I'll be very surprised as it's currently Queenstown's best-kept secret. Go!

    We loved our stay at Tia Heights. The setting was awesome with great views, the accommodation was extremely comfortable and cosy and the hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The hosts made us aware of the operation of everything on our arrival, and gave us information on the area, including info on water taxis, the deer farm, etc. We had the most enjoyable stay and loved the yurt. Also, thanks to hosts for the continental breakfast each morning and the delicious teas and coffee.
